And I might post run 25 as well, as I have posted the files elsewhere on the forum, to be analyzed by the bird.
Early September, turn 25
Von Wedell got promoted. Friederich von Gesler is angry at this - he wanted a promotion first. In the same stack there was also a * general (Georg von Driessen) that got promoted (it seems all possible promotions in the stack are done when you hit "promote"). This angers Friederich von Seydlitz. As those two guys lost me the 9 cavalry units a month ago I normally wouldn't care. It does cost me one morale and 35 victory points though
The sortie at Karlsbad worked. At day 4 there is a two round battle. 42.000 men from me against 32.000 enemies. I lose 2300 men, he loses 3000 - but also 4 more units. I gain 2 morale. The Austrians retreats westwards to Eger.
I decide to pursue with one column - go to hit them when they are down. Eger is already pillaged, I think the supply there is nil. With some luck the enemy will starve. There is a small cavalry blocking force behind them, in fact for the last 3 turns now. They have also been locked for these three turns, so they will starve shortly.
The army under Frederic returns to Lobositz. The Austrians are suspecting the road here is under defended, and some cavalry is sniffing around. I hope this army, together with the column under Prince Heinrich, is enough to hold the Austrians from Dresden - though I doubt if that works if the Austrian goes all out.
On the Russian front my out-of-town garrison has a short fight with the Russians near Koeningsberg. We lose, but without morale loss. The force survives for now.
The force retreating from Koeningsberg (under Hans von Lehwold) got hit by a pursuing force (under Dimitri Lopuchin). Even though outnumbered 12.000 against 18.000, von Lehwold manages to win. (600 men lost against 1600, 2 morale gained). We do retreat a region though. I order them to retreat again.
The other - cavalry - force under Dohna meets a Russian force before they can get to the depot they were targeting. No battle, but they get locked one region short of the depot.
In the north there is a strange battle near Rostock. As my cavalry arrives (680 men, no leader), they meet an enemy cavalry force 2721 men under Peter von Boehnen, a 0-0-0 (?) leader). After a short battle my men take possession of Rostock. I lose 17 men, the enemy loses 174 men - all from the single infantry regiment that was there, and is wiped out. (The combat display shows no rounds of combat, no units involved, no hits on either side....)
Outside Wismar we are still just glaring at each other. We are evenly matched, I am satisfied to defend, I suspect the enemy fore is locked (otherwise they would have to attack). I think the enemy cavalry force is going to reinforce them, but they are lost in the fog of war.
Wilhelm finally is active, and will reach Stralsund next turn. I hope he can get the siege going before winter...
In the west I manage to get a second breach at Weser - but so does the enemy at Kassel. The battle at Munden (north of Kassel) goes my way the first round, but the second round a column from the force in Kassel joins in - Ferdinand decides to retreat. We lose 1600 men, they 1300.
I decide to retreat to the north-west, to Brillon. This region is adjacent to the depot in Lippstadt, and I can reach Kassel (or the French supply line) in one turn. It will force the French to turn to Lipstadt, or risk their supply if they go for Hannover.
The Hessians under Wutginau also have a short battle. It unlocks them, and I send then north between Kassel and Hannover. They will harass the enemy when he turns to the west.
It does mean I have no force between Erfurt and Leipzig - I need some cavalry screen there. But those are all lost in the previous battles.
I order the besieging force at Weser to assault, even though there is still a strong force inside. I need them to get moving, I want to send them along the Rhine to the south, to Dusseldorf (and further).
No men for a unit, so I will have to wait till next turn. I will need more replacements....
